As reported by our brothers Brick Fanatics earlier today, a flyer for the promotions and exclusives being offered at LEGO brand stores in the United Kingdom has been discovered.

The flyer, which has been mailed out to VIP members indicates that - like any good movie saga - the promotion comes in three parts and runs between May 3rd and 6th.

The first of the three elements is a make and take, running from 4 to 6 pm on May 3rd, which will give participants a miniature version of 75244 Tantive IV, which officially gets put out on shelves on May 4th.

Shoppers will also be able to collect a free gift with purchase during the four days of the festivities - a purchase of £35 on LEGO Star Wars will be rewarded with a free polybagged 30383 Naboo Starfighter set while spending £75 will see a 40333 Battle of Hoth – 20th Anniversary Edition gift-with-purchase.

Members of the LEGO VIP rewards programme are next in line to benefit, who will get a free promotional poster depicting the 20th anniversary colleiton with a £75 purchase of LEGO Star Wars items.

The big release of the season - 75244 Tantive IV - hits shelves on the day itself, May 4th, priced US$199.99/CA$269.99/DE€199.99/UK£179.99/FR€219.99/DK1799/AU$329.99!

If you're still not satisfied, Brick Fanatics further reports that "all Star Wars sets will apparently be eligible for double VIP points over the weekend, and selected sets will also be on sale." So, if you've been waiting to pick up the new LEGO Star Wars sets, this might be the opportunity you've been waiting for.

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
